BLACK SABBATH bassist Terry ‘Geezer’ Butler recently discussed the current status of his planned autobiography.
Butler told SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” on their April 28 broadcast “[It’s] finished,” (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). “I sent the manuscript in three weeks ago, so now I’m just waiting for the edited version to come back so I can go nuts.”
He added: “The trouble is ever since I sent in the manuscript I thought about seven things I’ve left out. So I’m gonna probably drive them nuts now.”
As for when fans can expect to see the book released, Geezer said: “I think it’s looking like the beginning of next year now.”
Geezer first announced the completion of a book on his Twitter account back on April 6, posting: “Just turned in the 1st draft of my book so I’m now thinking of titles. So far, I have: Into the Void, Basses Loaded, Past Forward, What The Butler Did, Bassic Instinct. Feel free to send me which of those you think would suit my #autobiography”.
Butler is a founding member of BLACK SABBATH, and also acted as the band’s main lyricist throughout their early years, penning such notable tracks as “War Pigs”, “Iron Man”, “Paranoid” and countless others.
